True enough. However, it wouldn't hurt to do a minimal system power on just to be sure. Take everything off that mobo except for 1 stick of ram, the video card and cpu. power on the board and check the LED's on the keyboard. They should blink once (all of them simultaneously). If the CPU fan is spinning and you get past The LED flash and POST you most likely are in good shape. This is an idiot test (not you!). If the LED's flash and you get past the POST it tells you this: mobo, cpu, mem stick are good.
